Operation Manual is a photographic collage that crops and reframes user manuals for the Trolli 35 lawnmower. The Trolli was one of the standard lawnmowers made and used in the former German Democratic Republic from 1962-1989. Operation Manual creates a mysterious narrative where women operate and seemingly happily care for small, infant-like militant machines.
Operation Manual is part of the Soziale Sollbruchstelle Series of artworks. More on this project can be read about in the Soziale Sollbruchstelle Vol. 1 Publication. All works in this series can be found here.
